    Almost 28 years ago our son who was 16 at the time had a car accident. He was in a coma for 13 days. Mary Free Bed staff were beyond words with compassion and encouragement. Today you can not tell that our son went “to hell and back” (that is the only way we can descript the time in our lives) he has some short term memory loss but he compensates with making sure he makes notes -same as everyone else except he is more aware of what he perceives as his shortcoming- He is married with children in college and high school. He leads a very normal life no one would ever know what he went through The healing continues year by year. God bless you Dave and family.
